The Register: Mimecast and the death of the fileserver

In the interview Neil outlines the future plans for our grid-based cloud storage platform and discusses some of the drivers for the design decisions made.

Chris Mellor, one of Europe's leading storage journalists, interviewed Mimecast's CTO Neil Murray for an article in The Register today.

As Chris succinctly puts it Mimecast will soon have "a single, multi-tenant-aware repository, that single instances file-level content and provides search, backup, restoration, archiving, compliance and general document management services in the cloud across the email, file and SharePoint domains".

Chris goes on to provide interesting insight into how Mimecast's future product development will impact on traditional on-premise file servers and appliances, predicting the potential demise of the venerable file server.
